Space heat rejection radiatiors: Meteoroid/debris considerationThe effect of the meteoroid/space debris environment on the design and evolution of spacecraft waste heat rejection radiator systems is discussed. Active radiator systems; i.e., systems in which waste heat is collected from the various heat sources within a spacecraft and delivered to the radiator system by a heat transport loop are emphasized. The heat is distributed over the radiator area and thus rejected to space. Present and future systems are discussed.
